One thing I can promise you is that it generally last a few days and when you come out the otherside it feels great.
Stay strong and don't give in.
Aged 33, smoked for 25 years, 14 a day - Quit 13th October 2010 @ 21:30 - Cold Turkey - One Minute, One Hour, One Day at a Time If you're smoking today, it's because you've chosen to smoke today. if you're a recovering nicotine addict, like me, and you're not smoking today, it's because you've chosen not to smoke today. it's that simple.

thanks for replys you two, i guess today im saying then, i choose strength over weakness, health over diesese and life over death, just last night got me couldnt stop wanting to go to all night garage and buy some!!!! in all honesty its the first night i couldnt get to sleep so maybe that was it but that rule of 3 rings true
quit date 4th nov 2010
reason for quitting, sounded like a 90 year old breathing and im 31
Am on day 19 today and am really suffering - i can't tell you how good it's made me feel to log on and find someone else (or loads of others) who are having the same struggles. Naively i thought the first two weeks would be the hardest, but today and yesterday i have been thinking about smoking almost constantly....pleased to say i haven't given in to the nicodemon, even if i have been a complete nightmare at work and home (sorry OH!).
I guess it's just a case of always having your guard up, as i think i relaxed a little towards the end of week 2, feeling like i'd got really far etc etc.
Am currently eating a big bowl of peas to take my mind off the cravings - don't ask why, but peas or sweetcorn always help, mainly cos i eat them one at a time and it takes me ages to get through the bowl. By the time i'm done, i've forgotten about smoking!! Works with peanuts too, but i'm trying to keep the weight down so peas it is!!
Member of the November Alliance Squad - NAS - Nov 2010 Quit Group
16 years of smoking, since 11 years old
10-30 a day, sometimes more when combined with alcohol
It is just not fair when you get into the third week and things start going down hill, but that seems to be way of it - very often. I soooo nearly caved on Thursday last week (my third week) but realised that I have not really had a crave since then. Tiddly "oh I wish......" but nothing serious.
Hang in there quitters!
I will be using your peas and corn method Jennifox, sounds brill
quit 10-11-10 at 1pm after smoking about 20 a day for 48 years!
Using Champix, Easyway and most of all this site and all your support
Sian is right week 3 can be a toughy... it was a nightmare for me, but once you get through this week then into week 4 you do feel a bit better and stronger .. as you have supressed the demon I had all kinda things happening to me, sore teeth, ulcers in my mouth, headaches , the lot but get through this and you will be well proud ...keep up the good work and dont spoil what you have achieved so far..
